Belonging means acceptance as a member or part. As the child of a Haitian mother and African-American father growing up in suburbs of Colorado and California, Martine lacked just that; a sense of belonging. At twenty-two years old, despite what the media portrayed and against her family's wishes, Martine's curiosity of her self-identify led her to move to the country that bred her mother.
Dear Haiti is a compilation of Martine's journal entries where she documented the awkward, controversial, humorous, and catastrophic events as she discovered the unfamiliar country which is her home.
